In a home built with traditional, symmetrically lined wall features, you can use decorative features to add style and interest to the space. Exotic colors, patterns, and even textures can go a long way toward making the space seem interesting, without disrupting the sense of unity which this architectural choice makes inherent. If your home has contemporary walls, scattered at random intervals lightly throughout the space, consider using a single color or pattern to bring unity to the area. Even if you can't help but change up the tones on the various walls, you should at least use a unifying factor, such as a single type of decorative piece, or a single color used on all of the trim and molding. This will ensure that the space doesn't get too disparate.

The most appealing thing about blinds is that because they are so versatile, they typically can be blended into existing decor without detracting from the overall design of the room.

Bolster pillows are round and longer than a normal pillow but not as long as a body pillow, however they are used in a similar manner. They are used to a greater extent than body pillows are in providing comfort, but also serve a dual purpose in separating reluctant bed mates-for instant children who are made to share a bed. Husband pillows are used to prop a person up in bed, for instance to read or watch television. These pillows are tall for a person to sit against and have two arms that reach forward that you can lean on. The pillows get their name because using one is similar to being hugged from behind.

Cheap throw pillows have a tendency to unravel at the seams. Though double edge stitching is not common, it is a great sign of a quality throw pillow. For aesthetic reasons many well crafted pillows will only have a single stitch so don't rule these out completely. Just make sure that the trim is not already unraveling and that you can't pull it apart with a quick on the spot quality check before you buy. When shopping online this is a hard thing to detect but many websites now offer a zoom feature which will let you get close enough to see the trim quality. On the upside, shopping on major sites usually has the advantage of showing user reviews, make sure you read these to see what other customers experiences have been with the pillow you have in mind.

You will usually want to pick an odd number of pillows somewhere around three and seven for a natural asymmetrical look. If you're a balance freak like I am you may not be able to help the impulse to place an even number or either side, this is OK but takes a little from the "chic" factor. Also, opting of a smaller number of larger pillows rather than a ton of small ones provides a much cleaner look, but for certain motifs and backdrops you may want a really full appearance where the smaller pillows will be ideal.
